The King and Queen of Spain have visited the stand that the University of Salamanca has put up for the occasion of Madrid’s Book Fair.

In addition, the University of Salamanca scheduled two book presentations and the delivery of “Leeureka” awards! I Ibero-American Award for a Non-fiction Children’s Book.
